MPAA: Fritts ‘out of loop’

The Motion Picture Assn. of America is dismissing a claim by National Assn. of Broadcasters prez Eddie Fritts that Hollywood never made its intent known during deliberations over recently-passed cable reregulation legislation.

An MPAA source said yesterday it is “absolutely not true” that MPAA did not make clear what Hollywood wanted out of the cable bill.

“Eddie Fritts was out of the loop,” said the MPAA source.

Fritts recently told a D.C. audience that Hollywood “never stated their goals , never came out in the open (and) never put on paper what they wanted” during the cable rereg debate.
